Fingers on with the Neo Smartpen N2

NeoLAB has an Android-friendly pen that lets you bring your physical notes into the digital world.

The line between digital and physical gets blurrier every day, but for some folks you can't get rid of either. Taking notes is a perfect example — even though Google has an amazing new handwriting recognition keyboard, for some folks there's no replacement for a real pen and a pad of paper. The Neo Smartpen N2 gives you both by providing a physical pen that can record strokes. While this is not a new concept, the ability to sync with your phone and the app that processes everything is one of the better experiences out there today.

Designed for those who need extra grip to prevent the slip, the CandyShell Grip Case for the M9 packs plenty of flavor without bulking your device's waistline.

It's been a while since I've sported anything from Speck, and using this dual-layer case on the M9 makes me appreciate that they're still keeping it simple without skimping on design or quality.

Darkside features have come to the Orbotix Ollie app

Darkside features have come to the Orbotix Ollie app

An update to the Ollie controller app applies a fresh coat of paint and new features if you're running the Darkside variant.

While most of the rolling robots made by Orbotix have a cute, harmless look to them, the Darkside version of their Ollie robot is all about attitude. The murdered-out design extends from the two sets of tires and glossy shell all the way out to the packaging, including a little card with glossy red letters letting you know just how serious this little toy is about being hardcore.

When we first tried out the Darkside Ollie, the one place you didn't get this goth teen vibe was the app. Since both versions of Ollie use the one app, and the theme for that app was designed to compliment the friendly blue and white Ollie, it was to be expected. An update to the Ollie app last night has changed things, and now when you pair a Darkside Ollie to the app you get a darker, redder experience to match the angry little robot you just removed from the box.

Naztech 10400mAh Universal Power Bank review

With the ever growing number of devices that people are carrying around with them, there is more need than ever for ways to keep said devices charged.

Some people, like myself, carry around at least one usb power brick with them so that they can charge their devices throughout the day. This effort is useless if you are somewhere without outlets or if you want to charge on the go. Thankfully with the use of the Naztech 10400mAh Universal Power Bank you can charge up to 5 separate devices at once and still have enough juice to recharge your devices again later.

A quick hands-on with the LG G4's new Quick Circle Case

Today's announcement of the LG G4 also brought with a new Quick Circle Case, and this one's taking a cue from one of LG's other circular interfaces: webOS.

As with the G2 and G3 before it, the LG G4 has an optional Quick Circle Case. It replaces the back and adds a flap-style cover to the front with a prominent and large circle at the top that exposes the display.
